“Living” beverage with real health benefits now available at Argo Tea Cafés in endless flavor combinations
Chicago, Ill. – (June 1, 2016) – Argo Tea®, the Chicago-based premium tea brand known for all-natural tea-based signature drinks and premium loose-leaf teas, has collaborated with Kefiplant, to offer tea and wellness enthusiasts freshly-made, custom Kombucha concoctions they can’t find elsewhere.
Quebec-based Kefiplant, the expert manufacturer of certified organic fermented herbs, uses a patented fermentation process that packs the “live” culture with probiotics, enzymes, organic acids, antioxidants, and other metabolites to create their signature Kombucha.
“Kombucha by Kefiplant is processed by scientists with the highest quality standards, which allows us to create a living culture packed with nutrients that provide healthy digestive benefits and assist in overall body detoxification,” said Chantale Houle, President, Kefiplant.
Kefiplant’s Kombucha inspired Argo Tea’s imaginative mixologists and intelligent nutritionists to create an effervescent living drink that’s made-to-order. Argo Tea café customers will choose from the company’s Classic Black Tea or Green Tea Ginger, which is then blended with Kombucha by Kefiplant, soda water, and their choice of flavor shot and then served over ice. Kombucha is the latest signature beverage to be featured on Argo Tea’s new rotating Mixology Special, a permanent addition to the company’s café menu board.
“Argo Tea proudly sources the best ingredients from around the world to create innovative signature beverages that consumers demand for healthy drinks with real ingredients,” said Arsen Avakian, Founder and CEO, Argo Tea. “We’re proud to partner with Kefiplant, the leading manufacturer of high-quality Kombucha.”
Kombucha is now available in all Argo Tea cafés in Chicago and New York as well as other participating locations through June, in three different sizes: small ($3.95-$4.45), medium ($4.45-$4.95) and large ($4.95-$5.45), which range from 25-113 calories.
